There have even been some big surprise announcements of Vita titles being revived on the Switch! Just recently, Norn9: Var Commons and Amnesia: Memories were revived on the Nintendo Switch. That alone gave many in the fandom hope that maybe other previously Vita exclusive otome games might see their own Switch ports in the near future!
Of course, a few have seen a revival on PC via Steam, like the Psychedelica series and 7’scarlet, but there are still a few that are in danger of being “lost” in the wake of the Vita’s absence. So here are some of the Vita exclusive otome games that I would love to see pop up again on the Switch (or even on PC).
The release of Lover Pretendis right around the corner and if you’re looking for a cute, lighthearted otome game, you are definitely going to want to give this a go! Aspiring scriptwriter, Chiyuki dreams of breaking into the industry and one day finding her father. When she lands a job as an assistant on the set of a major film she takes one step closer to realizing her personal and career aspirations. As she searches for information about her father a twist of fate has her crossing paths with four men who may have the answers she need. And through a twist of fate she finds herself entangled in a pretend relationship with one of them?! This is a pretend love role, not true love. Can Chiyuki create a script about fake lovers, while not knowing anything about falling in love herself?
Lover Pretend is set to release on December 1, 2022. But, if you’re still on the fence about picking up the latest Aksys Games otome localization, I have five reasons I think you should totally play Lover Pretend!
We are two weeks out from the release of Otomate’s sci-fi otome game, Paradigm Paradox! I know it has pretty mixed views from otome gamers, but you have to admit it has a pretty interesting premise. The heroine, Yuuki is recruited to join a magical girl superhero group and fight against monsters called Vectors. Only, her cute teammates are actually the school hotties?! Kind of a what if I could date the Sailor Stars situation.
Thanks to our friends at Aksys Games I was able to play Paradigm Paradox and there is a lot to love about the game. So, for those of you still on the fence, here are 5 reasons I think Paradigm Paradox is worth picking up on October 27th!
It’s tough wooing otome boys and sometimes a heroine just needs someone cute and fluffy to cuddle—that’s where cute otome sidekicks come in! They may not always add much to the plot, but these adorable animal companions add a dose of cuteness to our lives every time they’re on screen.
Just about every otome game has it’s own cute animal buddy, so today I’m spotlighting some of the most precious little beans~
Hey Blerdy Tribe, it’s another wonderful otome release day! This time around we are celebrating the release of 2022’s most anticipated otome game, Variable Barricade! Wealthy heiress, Hibari Tojo absolutely does not want to get married. But, fate has other plans for her when her eccentric grandfather saddles her with four handsome (and problematic) suitor. Her beaus include, a walking debt generator, a suspected gambling addict, a kept-man, and a man alleged to have participated in marriage fraud…one has to wonder what her grandfather is thinking?!
As her suitors try to win her hand by any means necessary, Hibari endures endless everyday trials and temptations. Despite their shady pasts, the more time she spends with them, the more she wonders if there is more to these men than meets the eye…
This is one of the most fun games of the year and if you’re still on the fence about picking up a copy of the game for yourself, here are five reasons you should play Variable Barricade!
Sports anime are a staple of just about every new season’s lineup, with new seasons of popular franchises like Free and Haikyu or series like Tsurune hitting the scene. There is literally an anime series for every sport you can think of from the more mainstream sports like basketball, baseball, and soccer to the more traditional Japanese pastimes like kyudo, karuta, and shogi. But, what if this is your first time giving sports anime a try? Well, I have just the list of you! I’ve compiled a list of the ten tried and true rules you need to know before watching sports anime! Each of these rules will help you make the most of your sports anime experience! So sit back relax and give this list a gander!
Hey Blerdy Tribe, here’s another healthy dose of quality content here on Blerdy Otome! Another edition of Fuck, Marry, Kill: Otome Edition hot off the presses for your reading pleasure! For those of you that didn’t play this game as a kid, the basic premise is this:
One person poses three names of people known to someone else (either people known in their personal lives or of celebrities). The other person then has to decide which of the three they would kiss (or fuck, in more mature versions of the game… like this one), which one they would marry, and which one they would kill.
I’m cutting the middle man and just using the love interest lineup from otome games to answer three sacred, age old questions—Which otome guy would I fuck? Which otome guy would I marry? Which otome guy would I kill? This time around I’m looking at the boys of Kissed by the Baddest Bidder!
During one of my streams I got to talking about some of my fave “older” games–as I am want to do from time to time. While reminiscing about the good old days I realized that a lot of great games are tethered to outdated consoles and thus inaccessible to new players… and if you ask me that’s a TRAGEDY! There are some amazing games that I may never get to play again because there just isn’t a platform to play them on and that got me thinking about some of the older games I’d love to see get a re-release *cough* Switch port *cough*, heck I’d even settle for a PC port–anything just to get the chance to play them again. So, here’s that list… you’re welcome!
Also big thanks to wind_drops from the Discord server for coming up with the amazing title!
It’s a brand new year and once again I’m setting unrealistic goals for myself! I am very aware that I didn’t finish any of the games on 2021’s list, but I dunno, I have a good feeling about 2022–this is the year I’m finally going to make a dent on my backlog (maybe).
I’ve been sitting on a lot of games, some for years, but, I’m definitely going to make an effort this year. So, here are some of the games I plan on actually finishing in 2022!
My Switch has become my go to gaming platform, it’s affordable, portable, and it’s the new hub for otome games now that the Vita is officially dead (though it’ll live on in my heart forever). But, what makes the Switch the stand out console for me is the variety of games in it’s ever growing library, which in the last few years has included a lot more indie games. From platformers to RPGs to visual novels, more and more indie titles are finding a home on the console.
There are a lot of games to sort through, which can be a bit daunting, so I wanted to spotlight a handful of indie games I think are worth picking up if you’re looking for something new to play on the Switch!
